Authorities with the Lawrence Township Police Department say a Clearfield man is facing charges after he allegedly attempted to solicit sex from a 15-year-old girl.
Police say 38-year-old David Palmgren faces charges of corruption of minors, unlawful contact with a minor and open lewdness, according to online court records.
According to the affidavit, on Thursday, Oct. 13, police were dispatched to the Lawrence Park Village for a report from the online group 814 Pred Hunters.
Police say the group told officers that a man, later identified as Palmgren, had reportedly been messaging a 15-year-old girl and attempting to solicit her to have sex.
Authorities say, according to the messages, Palmgren was aware of the girl’s age and had even sent her sexually explicit photos of himself.
Police say Palmgren was taken into custody and was arraigned to the Clearfield County Prison.
He has since posted bail, court dockets show, and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for later this month.
